I think for many people, when they think of spring flowers they think of tulips. Am I right?
I grow several different types of tulips. There are fringed ones, lily tipped, long stem, short stemmed or dwarf tulips, regular garden variety tulips … I’m sure there’s another type or two that I grow.
Did you know that some tulips bloom in early spring, others in mid spring and that there are also late spring varieties? I grow some of each so that my garden is filled with tulips for the majority of the spring season.
I believe the white tulip that I included above is a lily tipped tulip. Some of it’s outer petals are longer than the rest and they arch up above the flower elegantly.
Do you grow tulips in your garden? Do you sometimes buy bulbs that have been forced so that you can have tulip or other spring bulbs blooming inside your house in late winter?
